Yoga mat is divided into several kinds of materials, the common is flax, TPE and PVC material.
These two kinds of mats: recyclable, to avoid environmental pollution. The main soft, Fu Ying, tiled ground, grip strong. TPE each mat is about 1200 grams heavier, than the 300 grams of PVC light, easy to carry. Waterproof and non-slip, even if sweating, in the above practice stop slippery effect is so good!
However, the price of TPE cushion is very expensive, (it depends on the needs of everyone) if according to cost-effective, PVC cushion economy, more affordable.
First, and most important, is from both ends of the mat (after the mat rolled up) to see if there is a very uniform bubble, gas larger and even the best! This shows that foaming hair is good.
1. Take a yoga mat don't open it first, sniff the top of the mat with your nose. See if there is a pungent taste. Generally good yoga mat will not have too much taste, open and put to two days, can be a trace of the taste of the release! If after a long time, the taste is still not dispersed, then it is possible that the quality of the mat does not pass, long time to use will cause harm to the body.
2. Feel with your hands, see Shen, if very heavy, there may not be PVC foaming technology, is the accumulation of raw materials. (usually 2.5 kg, yoga mat is 1.5 kg) PVC foaming technology, excellent elasticity, step on it will soon be restored to the original! and the other craft, the tread is not able to bounce for a long time. The gap between the process is large, which is one of the biggest reasons for the price gap.
3. After opening a careful look at the workmanship, whether fine, the general domestic mat work very rough. Some are just one side foaming, touching the surface is not non-slip design! There are sellers to the foot mat as a yoga mat to sell, we have to eyes. )
4. Use the palm to push the surface of the yoga mat, to have a dry feeling, if the surface of the yoga mat foaming agent on the wet feel, then in the above practice will be easy to slip, fall injured. (However, like some Taiwanese good yoga mats, just beginning with a layer of antibacterial layer, out of the sweat will find some slippery, but do not worry, this layer gradually receded, the effect of Anti-skid is revealed!) but the homemade mat is not going to go on like this. )
5. We try to choose 6mm thick. For example, do some knee movements, there is no feeling of pain.
